Indigenous Australians are one among the native people on earth with traditions and customs going back to approximately 50,000 years.

Their belief system is built on their value & respect towards the land and their Dreamtime. Though their dreaming changes between different groups, the idea of creation from their ancestors stays similar;

Ancestors and forefathers sprang up from underneath the soil as spirits and started building mountains, rivers, waterholes, trees, and light gardens for future generations.

Indigenous Designed Beeswax Wraps

We have chosen to work with Beeswax Wraps Australia as their beautiful beeswax wraps showcase a unique connection to the land, including exclusive Australian patterns and Dreamtime stories by talented Indigenous Artists.

Dreamtime stories are woven with sacred knowledge from the ancient to the present. They are shared to be etched into the hearts and minds of the receiver.

Passed through time to keep alive the rich history of this great land and, its beautiful people. It is an honour to participate in this timeless tradition.

Kangaroo Path

Artwork by Roseanne Morton.

Roseanne Morton is the daughter of Gracie Morton. Gracie is a well-known artist from Utopia.

In this artwork, Roseanne beautifully depicts the white dots to represent drinking water for Kangaroos. The dotted lines between the waterholes are the walking paths of Kangaroos.

Having learned from watching famous artists paint, Roseanne is regarded as the next generation of the Pwerle/Petyarre family of indigenous artists.

Woman Body Dreaming

Artwork by Cindy Wallace.

Cindy Wallace comes from the well-known Wallace family. She was born in 1973 in Santa Teresa, a place about 80km from Alice Springs.

Cindy’s work on Women Body Dreaming is an excellent piece of work.

‘Awelye’ is a word that describes everything to do with a women’s ceremony which includes body painting. Women are happy to decorate their bodies with dots, lines and circular segments.

Women perform Awelye ceremonies to demonstrate respect to their country, including Dreamtime stories that belong to the ancestors.

Dreamtime is the Aboriginal understanding of the world, it’s creation, and it’s great creation stories.

Summertime Rainforest

Artwork by Heather Kennedy.

Heather wonderfully depicts the flora and fauna of the rainforest in early summer. Flowers are blossoming, butterflies are stretching their new wings, and green trees, leaves and colourful flowers are everywhere.

Aboriginal people have a wealth of knowledge about managing water resources within the Australian landscape and have much to offer in land and water planning and management.

Some Aboriginal communities are currently managing some world heritage listed properties, like the Kuranda Rainforest and the Daintree, the oldest tropical rainforest in the world!

Bush Berry Ecru

Artwork by Marleen Doolan.

Marleen Doolan comes from Santa Terese, 1 hour from Alice Springs in Central Australia. Marleen is a talented artist and is a well-known Aboriginal artist in NT.

Alice springs is a semi-desert area. However, wild bush berries grow heavily after the rain and flowers blossom almost everywhere. Marlene could not go past without depicting beautiful wild bush berry’s after the rain.

Green and Brown berry’s grow in water-soaked mud street sides and are shown in this masterpiece. In winter, rainfall is heavy and bush berries grow in almost every area.

Wild Bush Flowers

Artwork by Layla Campbell.

Layla Campbell comes from Yuendumu, Northern Territory, and belongs to the Warlpiri language group. Layla is an accomplished indigenous artist whose paintings have been acquired by many private collectors.

Her paintings are about traditional Aboriginal stories and symbols. This particular painting is ‘Wild Bush Flowers’ which she inherited from her ancestors; however she has skill-fully developed her individual style of painting into the canvas.

This artwork depicts bush seeds, wild flowers and pods gathered by the Aboriginal women in Central Australia. Bush seeds and pods are the staple bush tucker and they are also collected for countless other purposes, such as traditional bush medicine.

Sunset Night Dreaming

Artwork by Heather Kennedy.

Heather Kennedy is an experienced and skilful designer from Victoria who uses vibrant colours to wonderfully depict the setting sun in rich shades of orange, red and green on a yellow background.

We acknowledge the Gimuy-Walubarra Yidinji People, and the Yirrganydji People, who are the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we work and live. We also acknowledge that this land was never ceded: always was, always will be, Aboriginal land.

Our beautiful collection of Indegenous Designed Beeswax Wraps are available in single packs and multi packs.
